KU wins Border War at the K, shutting out Missouri, 3-0

Kansas pitcher Shaeffer Hall pitched seven shutout innings to lead KU to a 3-0 victory over Missouri in front of 3,847 fans at Kauffman Stadium.

Hall gave up five hits, striking out four and walking just two.

A second-inning solo home run from right fielder Ryne Price and an eighth-inning single from left fielder John Allman that drove in two runs were more than enough for Hall.

Before Hall’s masterful performance, the Jayhawks (26-22) had lost four in a row and six of their last seven, falling into last place in the Big 12 standings at 5-13. While Tuesday’s game will not count as a conference game — KU and MU play a three-game series in Lawrence May 9-11 — the victory should give Kansas some much-needed momentum heading into a crucial eight-game homestand.
